America might not have to wait until 2012 for Sarah Palin to return to national politics. Should Senator/convicted felon Ted Stevens win reelection, he will be expelled from the Senate, putting Gov. Palin in a position to appoint herself to his seat. Palin would, however, have to run for the seat in a special election within 90 days of her appointment due to an Alaskan law. At this point, the possibility of Sen. Palin is pure speculation, but you can bet there are members of the press praying it comes to pass.
